Unsung Horrors ,

Give it go

Robert & Chris cover give each movie they discuss a fair shake and cover every aspect of it, from cast to score to cinematography, not just a plot walk through like many other movie podcasts. Their love for the genre is clear and even if I don't agree with their opinions about some of the movies, I still enjoy listening.

AgentMacky ,

Highly recommend

In all verisimilitude, I forgot about them rediscovered this awesome pod. The subjects are always interesting and the hosts made me revisit Alien after many years. Keep up the great work.

Land of Enchantment Lobo ,

A National Treasure in Film Review

Fast, smart, witty, informative, never boring and far and away better than any peer podcast. Truly professional and palpable on-air host chemistry - the perfect juxtaposition between Chris’ film savoir faire and Robert’s horror fan cred. Never limited or confined by its horror genre faithfulness but always informed by it. Who knew the horror genre was this important to film - I guess the film flamers did. 🤔

I feel like you guys are 5-minutes from stardom - we’ll always be able to say we remember you when. As there are no small parts, there are no small podcasts. You’re already stars to your fans. 🤩

A Nightmare on Elm Street - 80’s nostalgia galore and abounding in Freddy folklore - Robert, deny us your expertise no longer! (Halloween? 🤫)

Jurassic Park - PG-13 horror at its finest and a horror score for the ages, Chris. Forever incomplete until the Film Flamers give us their deep dive. (Which apparently will happen this August! 🤣)

Happy 40th Robert! 🎂
